Reflections: Help is a step away, but not for long

I am stoked about this class. I took this class because I thought it would be a breather from the rest of my courses. Upon reading the comments from other students and seeing the syllabus, I think I’m going to have to get into a different mindset. With that said, here are the two lessons I learned from last semester’s students.

Going to see Professor Strong

I am typically a very independent worker. I don’t really ask others for help and try to figure things out on my own. My professor last semester told me that it’s good I’m independent but I should be taking advantage of the help that is available. I was surprised by how many people gave this advice. I realize how valuable having professionals as professors. I hope to talk over my ideas and work with Professor Strong throughout the semester especially since I’m indecisive and always all over the place with my ideas.

Time management

I am someone who does things last minute. After the first day, I realized that this class requires a lot of time with having to do other assignments on top of the project. During boot camp, I learned that design takes time. One thing I read that I want to remember throughout the course is that when you are rushing it will show in your work. I really do want to make a professional looking publication that I’m proud of, so I hope to use my time wisely and really think this project through. My fear, also, is procrastinating going in to get help from Professor Strong. I can’t show up towards the end of the semester asking for help because it might be too late (something I tend to do).
